I think this is great, and unusual. Figural bust shoulders with gilt bronze ormolu protrusions. The lid has a small repair, but otherwise the whole vase is in excellent original condition. Fabulous gilt and black contrasting decorations on glazed cream body. Very fine work as I hope the photographs show. Measures 11 1/2" tall and about 9 1/2" wide. A large, authentic, and somewhat unusual piece. I have seen this form, but the decorations make it very unique. Signed on base as shown.
